Brave:

I really like The Black Cauldron.

Also Tiana must be at least in her twenties. She owns a restaurant...not many nineteen-year-olds own restaurants.

So I've just got back from seeing this (it was only recently released in the UK) and whilst it was alright, it lacked in my opinion. Of course, Brave coming off the back of Tangled probably doesn't help. Here are just a couple of points I would have liked to have seen in the movie.

- I would've liked to have seen a redemption arc for Mor'du. But I guess his death was pretty good.

- More glorious cheesiness.

Erm, other than that, I think it started off really quite slowly and suffered for it. I did like the literal Mama Bear though.

The one thing that stood out to me was the soundtrack. I loved it so much I bought it off iTunes :3

Saw this on the plane ride back to the States, and I thought it was an enjoyable waste of a couple of hours. I think it was the novelty factor, since I don't see a whole lot of stuff that has to do with Scoatland. Visually, hit-or-miss. What really stood out for me was Touch the Sky, which immediately went on my Good Song List.

@the Brenda Chapman article. I guess there is still ways to go when it comes to Women working in the animation industry. I already know it is dominated by men, but you'd think Pixar would be more 'open' about it.

[up] Oh for the love of- SHE WASN'T PUT OFF THE FILM FOR BEING A WOMAN! I havn't read the article because I refuse to go to Cartoon Brew, but for crying out loud people, directors being moved around is nothing new in animation. Pixar already did it before in Ratatouille. Yeah, it sucks that she didn't get to direct, but it wasn't because she was a woman. Get over it.

OK, scratch that, read the article. And in it, SHE HERSELF feels that the movie did her original vision justice. Again, get over it.

[up][up] So in other words Mark Andrews Presented the exact movie Brenda made and got the OK while she did not?

Tsk, tsk, tsk...
 
Tried watching this and wow...what a disappointment. The whole Mama bear thing killed the movie for me, at that point if I had been in the theatre I would've walked out. I tried giving it a chance past that point but I just couldn't hang with it, especially since the previews made it seem like it would've been an entirely different(and much more interesting) story. They still play it where I work so just about every day I'm reminded of how disappointing this film was.

Easily one of pixar's worst.

It bugs me that people keep judging this based on what it was marketed as, rather than the merits or lackthereof of the actual product.
[up] But that's the thing. The marketing hyped it up too much as something different. On it's own, compared to what it could have been (based on that marketing), it just doesn't measure up.

Not to mention, on its own, it is actually kinda dull. It sort of felt like... a faux action movie, perhaps. Does that make sense?

Marketing often screws things up for movies. Like Bridge to Terabithia, for instance.

However, a problem with this movie is that sometimes it doesn't exactly seem to know what kind of movie it is either. There are a few scenes, especially earlier on, which are pretty superfluous once you find out what kind of movie it actually is.

So remember all that talk we had about whether or not Merida would be included in the Disney Princess line? Well this image comes from the recent New York Toy Fair 2013.

Glad to see all that talk about pro-feminism, not wanting to be a princess means bs in the end.

Marketing can be a bitch. The problem with a situation like this is that it often takes a while before you realize the movie you're watching is not what you expected, so you spend a good portion of the movie waiting for something you don't get...and miss the actual movie in the process.

Unfortunately, even unto itself Brave still feels like it should have been what it was marketed as. It's like it wants to be an epic and it just isn't quite there.

[up][up]Well she certainly stands out.

Does anyone have the full image of that? Y'know, with more of Jasmine and the rest than just the tops of their heads? I [rather half-assedly] looked and couldn't find it.
And if I claim to be a wise man, well, it surely means that I don't know.

Not that we shouldn't be annoyed, but wasn't it already confirmed that Merida would be joining the Disney princesses? And the movie was about reaching a balance in her responsibilities instead of just going "I don't want to be a princess!"

So they gave Rapunzel the blonde hair even though by the time she's a princess her hair is brown. Okay?

Rapunzel's hair in marketing is always blonde because that's what people remember her as being, and it matches the description in the original fairy tale. I never saw the brown-haired version anywhere other than in the movie and the short.

Her hair was brown in the movie? It's been a while since I've seen it.

Mattonymy, you missed the point of the film, it seems... or am I reading that pothole wrong?
